St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) released her new album, MASSEDUCTION, last October via Loma Vista. It was one of our Top 100 Albums of 2017. Now she has done a session for Spotify where she has covered “Consideration,” from Rihanna‘s 2016 album ANTI. The original track also featured SZA. Listen to the cover below.

St. Vincent previously shared MASSEDUCTION track “New York” (it was our #1 Song of the Week), as well as a colorful video for the song. She also shared another song from it, “Los Ageless” (which was also our #1 Song of the Week), as well as a vibrant video for “Los Ageless” in which Clark got plastic surgery. She also stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to perform “New York” on the broadcast show and “Los Ageless” as a web-exclusive. Then she shared the song “Pills,” which tackles our culture’s over-reliance on medications and features vocals from Cara Delevingne and Jenny Lewis and saxophone from Kamasi Washington. Plus there was a video for “Pills.”

St. Vincent also stopped by the BBC music show Later… with Jools Holland to perform “New York” clad in a leopard print body suit and accompanied only by a pianist wearing a shiny red Mexican wrestler mask (and also covered Patsy Cline’s “Crazy”). We also shared a Japanese bonus track, “政権腐敗,” which is pronounced “seiken fuhai” and translates to “Power Corrupts.” Plus she covered The Clash’s “London Calling” for BBC Radio 1. She also performed “Los Ageless” on Ellen. She also performed “Slow Disco” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in a fake church set, with a string section sitting in pews in front of her. St. Vincent was also the musical guest on the BBC late night talk show The Graham Norton Show where she performed “Los Ageless,” playing her guitar and dressed like she was a stylish member of The X-Men, while backing dancers with guitars moved in silhouette on the other side of a screen behind Clark. Plus was a guest on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, where she was interviewed and performed. She also shared a remix of “New York” by British electronic artist Kelly Lee Owens. Then she did one of NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concerts.
